Are Wolves Living in Utah County?

(KCPW News)  On Sunday, Division of Wildlife Resources personnel spotted what appeared to be four wolves while performing coyote control from a helicopter in the mountains east of Springville in Utah County.  Now the division must determine if the animals are wolves or wolf-dog hybrids before deciding a course of action.  KCPW’s Eric Ray spoke with DWR Wildlife Section Chief Kevin Bunnell, who says finding the predators wasn’t a great surprise:

The division plans an attempt to locate, collar and draw blood from one or two of the animals this weekend.  Information about the state’s Wolf Management Plan is available here:
